that hitting the debt ceiling, oh, that won't hurt a bit, who cares? republican congressman mo brooks of alabama told the washington post this week that on the contrary, all credit rating should be improved by not raising the debt ceiling, which is like saying you're looking forward to how that sledge hammer is going to improve your dental work. another congressman says after a catastrophic default and financial crisis the government can just move some money around to fix things for awhile. "that wouldn't work for just a few days, that would work for a few years" adding it's an arrogant attitude to take. republican congressman tim wahlberg of michigan in agreement, he told the washington post it's time to "hold the line," but which he means we should default, just go for it. republican allen west of florida says president obama is fearmongering on the debt ceiling that it's nothing to be afraid of. republicans are not alone on this. >> this is a misnomer that i believe the president and the treasury secretary have been trying to pass aufz on the american people, and it's this, that if

hinton in the british job, rebekah brooks resigned this morning. potentially next on the chopping block, somebody even closer to him, rupert murdoch's own son james who has been busy not explaining himself, paying off phone hacking victims on the side. this is a damaging scandal. but that leaves some of the as-yet surviving parts of his media empire in the position of having to cover their boss' really big problem. when that kind of thing goes badly, that kind of thing goes really, really badly. i have seen a lot of amazing things come out of the morning show program on the fox news channel, but although i will admit of having low expectations of howç the fox news channel morning show would handle the murdoch scandal story, i never anticipated it would look like this. >> rebekah brooks has now resigned as chief executive of our parent company's british news corporation. this morning we're finding out the pentagon suffered one of its largest hacking events ever, a psycher theft of more than 125,000 files. the pentagon says they were stolen by a foreign government. what do you make of t

post" columnist as brookings institution. e.j., good to see you. >> good to be here. i think all the money's going to thaddeus mccotter. wait until july 15th, from his appearances on this show. >> thaddeus mccotter, i feel like, is a special favor to me from god. i must have done something good in a past life. some ancestor of mine did. he's rinning for president. weird videos, with the guitar, showing weird nylon socks. >> where did he ge the guitar? >> talks about profit tags. is it possible outside groups are a more attractive spot instead of the candidates? is that possible? >> it sure looks that way. what you're seeing among republicans, a lot more enthusiasm for the proposition let's beat barack obama than for the propositions let's elect one ever these other people. as republicans know they want to win the election but they're not really satisfied with any of these candidates, and i think one indication of that is that every time a new name goes out there, whether serious or not, donald trump, unserious, rick perry, hard to take seriously, but maybe serious. they suddenly

's about to happen in washington, please, turn away and think about babbling brooks and warm puppies for a minute. because with the chances of 5 grand compromise appearing as unlikely as ever, today a group of democratic leaders in the house officially urged president obama to go to plan z, to deploy{ the constitutional option. this would involve the president raising the debt ceiling on his own, without congressional authorization, by invoking his powers under the 14th amendment of the u.s. constitution. >> if a small group really is that intent on destroying government and is intent on saying they don't believe that there's any ramifications for their ear responsibility, then we have to have a fail-safe mechanism. we believe that fail-safe mechanism is the 14th amendment and the president of the united states. >> mr. speaker, house republicans have failed to govern. failure is not an option for our country. and therefore, you leave it to the president to take whatever action is within his power by his right under the constitution to move this country forward and make sure americans

, columnist for "the washington post" and senior fellow at the brookings institution, and, of course, a fellow academic, a professor at georgetown. good to see you tonight. >> good to be with you. >> thanks. i was watching last night. from what i saw, this looked like -- out of this from your perspective at this point. >> maybe define intervention is this problem. i mean, what you've got here, i think there's so many interesting analogies to the 1850s, to pick up on your civil war analogy, when we were divided. now, thank god we're not talking about secession and slavery, but what you have here is a large determined minority inside the republican caucus that just don't want to make a deal. they are saying things that are way outside the mainstream view, really doesn't matter if we don't raise the debt ceiling, we can get through default, it won't be a big deal. now, john boehner doesn't believe that, mitch mcconnell doesn't believe that, but boehnor seems unable to move toward any kind of agreement, partly because he's worried about his own fate in this caucus or he's worried that if he puts t
